As the world collectively pursues reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the capital equipment industry plays a critical role. Electrification is on the rise. As key manufacturers help lead the charge to electrification, Hyster steps up to the plate with cutting-edge technologies for your fleet.
Earlier this year, we blogged about the benefits of going electric, showing how electrification doesn’t compromise operational requirements–and actually leads to overall cost savings alongside the clear environmental benefits (now that’s what we call a win-win!). In this edition of the Papé Material Handling blog, let’s take a look at how big trucks are entering the electric age.
Some of the benefits of going electric include:
- environmental sustainability
- less maintenance
- cost savings on fuel
- tax rebates
- machinery that will bypass any future nation or state-side restrictions on fuel-powered machinery
As government regulations and corporate initiatives are looking to reduce emissions, electrification is emerging as a realistic long term option to satisfy the business requirements for heavy-duty applications. It’s the way of the future, and fleets are quickly adapting to the changing tides.
So, while we’ve seen electrification on smaller equipment in recent years, Hyster is now taking electrification to even higher-capacity equipment. This is assisted by hydrogen fuel cell and lithium-ion battery powered solutions as an alternative to fuel:
- Large lithium-ion batteries offer a choice between conventional and opportunity charging.
- Hydrogen fuel cells work in combination with lithium-ion batteries, offering a choice between conventional and opportunity charging, and standing up to a heavy-duty cycle. This option enables operators to work a full day without refilling, and is more than well suited for heavy-duty applications.
High-Performance, Zero Emission Alternatives
Your choice for high-performance, zero emissions equipment is expanding, and Hyster is bringing big trucks into the electric age–and into your fleets.
Hyster® Electric Big Trucks reduce emissions, fuel consumption, and lower maintenance costs. And with their exceptional traction power, acceleration, and visibility, you’re not sacrificing any operational capacities; it’s just like driving a diesel–but better. The newest line of electric big trucks feature:
- Integrated lithium-ion power
- Fast charging times
- Zero maintenance
- Big savings and more uptime
- Robust design
- Operator comfort
- Excellent visibility
- Easy serviceability
